Yes. Knock on wood. I bought the Revolution used last November (2 months ago). Having read how durable it is, I wasn't thinking there'd be any mechanical problems. Thus, I bought it knowing the company is out of business. But, #*^@ happens . . .
I saw those two postings. When I'm off crutches, I'll need to try my hand as a mechanic and take apart the trainer. I'm hoping it's the tensioner bearing, as this seems to be the easiest to get to, and the Boca 6802 bearings seem to be a good replacement.
If it's the freehub or the fan? bearings, I not sure if a replacement can be found.
I'm hoping I don't need to find another used Lemond Revolution trainer, but I'm starting to look.
I found this thread interesting as I also have a Revolution. No problems...knock on wood.
Is it the freehub bearings or the tensioner bearings? If it's the tensioner bearings, I found this on the RBR forum: LeMonde Revolution trainer belt tensioner bearings Several days ago my LeMonde Revloution trainer made a noise when I started riding that sounded like a bearing going bad. The noise lasted less than a minute and didn't come back. I took the trainer apart, listened to and felt the bearings while spinning them. The bearings under the belt tensioner felt loose and dry. The markings on the bearings did not corespond to any bearing I could find online. I measured the bearing and it matched a Boca 6802. I ordered an inexpensive pair of bearings from Boca and a belt from LeMonde, received and replaced them today. The belt tensioner bearings are quite small for the job so replacing them when they start to complain is to be expected.
I also found a link to the service manual: https://www.manualslib.com/...mond-Revolution.html
